Electric motorcycle ( ZERO motorcycles )

Recommended Posts

Anyone own one of these electric motorcycles?

I did a test ride on one 3 day ago.

Wow , they are fast  & very quite when  your moving along, Stealthy indeed.

A viable option as a bug out bike, in a EMP event I’m guessing the bike is toast, unless it’s stored in a EMP cage

Buying one new is out of the question, pricy like $8,000 US funds.

Yeah I'll looked at them a few times. They don't say the battery capacity , but it plugs into a standard outlet(110vac 15 amp (Max)) and charges "overnight" ....so 8hrs(?) and that would include a full discharged battery...right? Then a few solar panels and invertor dedicated to charging it and you would have a 100km plus every few days. Yeah in a hard grid down a really must have.....

I’ve looked at a used ZERO MX model at a motorcycle repair shop, that the owner purchased new in 2010, he’s willing to let it go for around $2500 Canadian.

I have it on hold for me, until the end of the month.

He says that it takes 3 hours for the battery to charge from almost empty to full charge. 

I did ride it , it’s not as fast as the newer 2018 models.

This used one will hit 55mph / 85kph ,still quite fast for a electric dirt bike. 

I’ve poped wheelies with it, the torque is there if needed. It was a fun ride even though it’s used.

The only maintenance is oiling  the chain & sprockets & your good to go.

Purchased the Zero MX motorcycle yesterday, got 2 brand new tires installed in the deal. 

Everything for $2,000 , which is a no brainer of a deal & couldn’t pass up.

I’m very happy.

Now I need to build a EMP cage for this bike, which will be another project.

The things to do never ends. B)

very cool....maybe a grounded metal shed for it?

 

 

That’s a thought, my son who’s studying to be a welder-inspector  plans on making a EMP cage for the bike in a couple of weeks.

I had way to much fun riding the Zero today & my son really wants it, just might give it to him as a present.

And would get a 2018 Zero FX or DS model, but the practical side of things, I can’t see my self spending $16,000-$20,000 Canadian funds. One could have a lot of ammo, stored food etc,etc for that kind of coin.

I could get a few acres of land in northern Ontario with that kind of money. 

Decisions decisions, one needs to be wise with their money & not spend it foolishly.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
